Happy Biggest Loser night!

Well, I am on vacation officially... until Sunday when I work at my 2nd job. Today was spent being lazy in the morning then heading out to Pickering for the afternoon... by the time I got home I was hungry for dinner... so, ate dinner and then planned on going on the treadmill... but something I ate isn't sitting right with me after dinner (feels like none of my food has digested)... so, I haven't gotten there yet. It may not happen today after all, but it's okay because tomorrow I have ZERO plans so I will go on the treadmill EXTRA long!!

Yesterday I went to see Poppa Jim... he is doing really well. He is quite optimistic about going home. We know he can't care for him and grandma so I believe the consensus is we will find them a live-in, full time caregiver. It will be great for them to be able to stay in their house. The exhausting part for my parents and aunts/uncles right now is making sure someone is with grandma all the time... my mom works 5 days a week so she can't help during the week, so she ends up taking her every weekend... my mom is exhausted. My uncle is going to stay with grandma this weekend (since he works 5 days a week also he has only slept over at the farm, not actually spent days with her... so it's his turn!). It will all work out.

Here's what I ate today:
Breakfast - oatmeal (2), yogurt (1)
Lunch - salad with chicken (2) and balsamic drsg (2), flatbread (3)
Dinner - soup (0), tuna (2), ff miracle whip (1), fruit salad (2), yogurt (1)
Total: 16 (if my food would digest, I would have eaten more!)
Water: 3L... hopefully 1 or 2 more

I will come back and update if I end up getting on the treadmill during Biggest Loser. Happy Tuesday!!

Jen, I'm glad you finally got to see your grandma and Poppa Jim. I'm glad to hear they both seem to be doing OK. It must be very hard for your mom and her siblings to try and be there constantly for your grandma. Hopefully the caregiver thing works out.
I didn't know that your Poppa Jim was in the ICU. Has he been there since he got back from TO? And yes, there was a very upset family on Monday. It was not a good day :(
You definitely should have looked for me on Monday!! Wendy and I were working...we could have had a nice little visit! Our office is right around the corner from ICU!!
It looks like you're having a great week. Especially since you're on holidays. I have a hard time not taking a WW holiday when I don't have to work!!!
Good luck tomorrow!
